Irresistible piece of history
Urging all Americans - including you, John Jones - to do their patriotic duty, to preserve our way of life and not let this country (U.S.A.) be destroyed by its enemies. A little girl (Margaret O'Brien) recites the Gettysburg Address with amazing conviction and, in a series of episodes, portrays the child-victims of war. This is really a must-see - James Cagney! pretty Ann Sothern and the scene/film-stealing Margaret O'Brien doing their part to help whip the Axis!
